CNM Starts Chapter of National Adult Education Honor Society

September 9, 2015 -- The CNM Office of Adult Basic Education (ABE) has started a chapter of the National Adult Education Honor Society (NAEHS).

Sep 09, 2015

Initiated in 1991, the NAEHS provides meaningful recognition to deserving ABE, English as a Second Language (ESL), Literacy, High School Diploma (HSD) and General Educational Development (GED) students.

To qualify for NAEHS membership, students must demonstrate dependable attendance, cooperative attitude, and work ethic. The NAEHS does not require high test scores as a condition of acceptance. Students do not pay dues, attend meetings or require faculty sponsors. Students’ only obligation is to share with others what adult education has meant for them and encourage family members to utilize local adult education programs.

Beginning this term, CNM ABE faculty members will be able to nominate students for induction into the NAEHS. Inducted students will receive an 8½” x 11” NAEHS certificate suitable for framing; a gold, black, and white lapel pin; a recommendation letter from NAEHS headquarters for employment and promotion purposes; and a recommendation letter for financial assistance, should the student wish to continue his or her education.

CNM’s first induction ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 6:30 the Smith Brasher Hall Auditorium. Thereafter, induction ceremonies will be held at the end of each spring and fall terms. Anyone interested in volunteering to assist at these ceremonies is encouraged to contact Anita Evans at or (505) 244-4000 Ext. 50076.
